Austrian Kelag is Expanding its Green Portfolio in Croatia – Taking Over the Wind Farm Orjak

The Austrian electric energy company Kelag took over the wind farm Orjak, which is located in the vicinity of Split, from the German company BayWa. The wind farm consists of five wind aggregates with a total power of 10.25 MW and annually generates 25 million kWh of electricity which meets the needs of 7000 households for electricity, as announced on the official site of the Kelag Company.

At present Kelag has two wind farms in Croatia, Orjak and Jasenice and in addition manages wind farms in Burgenland, Austria, Romania, and Bulgaria. The total power of all the wind farms amounts to 87 MW and jointly produce about 210 million kWh of electricity annually, which corresponds to the needs of 60.000 households. In comparison, Kelag’s complete electricity production, exclusively from renewable sources, (hydro-electric plants, solar plants, and wind farms) in 2019 amounted to 3359 million kWh annually.
